This course structure is meant to give you an overview of the obligatory and elective courses included in the B. Sc. program of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering. As the following is only a translation of the German course structure, we would kindly ask you to refer to the original version for official titles of seminars and courses.
In the further course of your studies you will specialize in one of the following fields of concentration (SP):

  • Power Engineering (ET)
  • Micro- and Nanoelectronics (ME)
  • Information- and Communications Technology (IC)
  • Computer Engineering (CE)
